The Last Chase

The Last Chase is a 1981 Canadian-American dystopian science fiction film directed by Martyn Burke, the producer on the film, produced for Argosy Films. The film stars Lee Majors, Burgess Meredith and Chris Makepeace in a futuristic scenario about a former racing driver who reassembles his old Porsche and drives to California in a world where cars and motor vehicles of all kinds have been outlawed by the powers that be.. In the year 2011, the United States is a police state. A substantial percentage of the population was wiped out by a devastating viral pandemic 20 years earlier. Amidst the resulting chaos and general panic, democracy collapsed and a totalitarian cabal seized power. After moving the seat of government to Boston, the new dictatorship outlawed ownership and use of all automobiles and aircraft, on the pretext that an bigger crisis, the exhaustion of fossil fuel supplies, was imminent; the loss of other personal freedoms followed, surveillance cameras now monitor private citizens' every move.

In Boston, Franklyn Hart, a former race car driver who lost his family to the plague, is a spokesman for the mass transit system. Publicly, he deplores the selfishness of private vehicle ownership and exalts the virtues of public transportation. Years before, as private vehicles were being confiscated, Hart sequestered his race car – an orange Porsche 917 CAN-AM roadster – in a secret compartment beneath his basement. Over the ensuing years he has restored it to drivable condition, raiding long-abandoned junkyards in the dead of night for parts, his goal is to drive across the country to "Free California", an independent territory that has broken away from the rest of totalitarian America. Young electronics whiz Ring McCarthy deduces Hart's plan, Hart reluctantly agrees to bring him along on his perilous journey; the ubiquitous surveillance system catches Hart vaulting a junkyard fence. Although gasoline has not been sold for 20 years, Hart has access to a inexhaustible supply, the residual fuel remaining at the bottom of subterranean storage tanks in every abandoned gas station in the country.

He uses. News of the duo's daring adventure spreads across the country; the government, represented by a Gestapo-like figure named Hawkins watches with growing concern as the public takes notice and cheers Hart's defiance of authority. Calls for a return to personal autonomy and democracy are heard, for the first time in two decades. Hart must be stopped. Hawkins orders J. G. Williams, a retired Air Force pilot, to track down and destroy Hart and his car in a Korean War-vintage F-86 Sabre, he strafes the car, wounding Hart. A community of armed rebels takes Hart and McCarthy in, hides the car, treats Hart's wounds. A team of mercenaries soon locates and attacks the enclave, although Hart and McCarthy escape during the firefight. Back on the open road, Williams once again has the roadster in his crosshairs; as an old rebel himself, he is starting to identify with Hart's situation. Prodded by Hawkins, Williams initiates several more confrontations, but each time he backs off, to Hart's and McCarthy's bewilderment.

McCarthy rigs a radio receiver and listens in on Williams's cockpit radio communications establishes a dialog with him using Morse code via a hand-held spotlight. Williams confides that he is sympathetic to their cause, but Hawkins is monitoring Williams's radio communications, after learning of his change of heart, orders the activation of a Cold War-era laser cannon at a position ahead of Hart's route. Williams attempts to warn Hart. Williams releases his external fuel tanks ahead of the car, hoping the inferno will stop the car short of the cannon's range. Williams can not pierce its heavy armor, his sacrifice allows Hart and McCarthy to drive on toward California where they are welcomed as heroes. The Last Chase began photography in October 9, 1979, with production wrapping on December 4, 1979; the film locations included locales in Canada. The Last Chase was filmed in Tucson, Marana and Phoenix, along with the Sonoran Desert; the film was shot in Port Credit, Calendon and the Mosport International Raceway, Durham, Canada.

The aircraft used in The Last Chase was a Canadair CL-13 Sabre Mk 6, c/n 1600, N1039C. Film historian and reviewer Leonard Maltin in Leonard Maltin's Movie Guide 2013, considered The Last Chase as "... a flimsy drama that reeks of Reaganomics."The review in TV Guide said, "The performances are adequate, but the script fails to balance the car chases with interesting characters." The Last Chase was released on VHS and CED by Vestron Video. The film was re-released in DVD format in 2011 via Code Red; the Last Chase on IMDb The Last Chase at the TCM Movie Database The Last Chase at AllMovie
